Bullying prevention remains one of DoDEA’s top priorities. In order to help educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention, DoDEA actively acknowledges National Bullying Prevention month in October. Multiple events will be featured throughout the month including a social media campaign using the hashtag #DoDEAAgainstBullying.

On October 25th, school staff and students across DoDEA are encouraged to wear orange for Unity Day. The national theme of Unity Day is Together against bullying. United for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. For DoDEA, it is a day we stand together and send a unified message that we care about our students’ physical, mental, and emotional health. Don’t forget to post your pictures using #DoDEAAgainstBullying!
